Amen brother...

I grew up in Detroit (almost identical age as you Monte) - and you're dead on. The guys with factory jobs made a decent wage and were the pillars of the neighborhood. In that day, the war was on everyone's mind - you never knew when a friend would be coming back... in a body bag. Today it's buried on page 23 if it's there at all. Nixon was tossed on his ass for far less than anything done by the Bush-Cheney-Halliburton administration.

Journalism today is a joke, and Frank Rich is my hero, one of the few.
